A very nice Ron Kusse "Flamed Quad" bamboo fly rod, 6'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #4 line. Serial #9700P. The rod weighs 3.1 ounces on my scale (the tag states 2.5 but that could be the blank weight). Mint condition. The action is a strong DF. Superb varnish and the rod is pin straight. The cane is flamed with a two opposed node pattern. The main wraps are brown with black, red, and black edges at the keeper, ferrules, and top top. Black snake guides. Oxidized step ferrules. The grip is a 5 1/2" slim cigar that's been flatted to meet the bamboo. The reel seat is flatted and varnished mahogany with oxidized cap and ring hardware (the butt cap has a tiny bit of edgewear from shipping). The cap is stamped "Ron Kusse, Maker". The rod packs into a yellow poplin bag with a hang tag, and the tube is a black crackle painted aluminum with brass fittings and Ron's data sticker.
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
